Island Air to Expand With Q400s

[Aviation Today April 1, 2014] Hawaiian regional carrier Island Air has placed a $60.9 million order for two Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft, with options to purchase four additional Q400s. The airline selected the dual-class 71-seat configuration for its new Q400s. If all options were exercised, the purchase value would increase to $188 million, Bombardier said. 

“As part of our ongoing restructuring and expansion strategy, the Island Air team considered a number of aircraft and we are pleased to announce the selection of the Q400 NextGen turboprop," said Paul Casey, president and CEO of Island Air. 

Island Air will look to deploy the new aircraft on its routes to and from the islands of Oahu, Maui, Lanai and Kauai.
